Let’s Make A Shaded Nine Patch from If These Threads Could Talk

I was scheduled to teach the Shaded Nine Patch Star to the Thread Bears Quilter’s Guild of Sherill, NY in May. But as it doesn’t look like I will be able to, so I am going to teach it here.

This star was designed by Studio 180 Design Certified Instructor Sarah Furrer.  I love it as a fun way to learn the Shaded Nine Patch Unit.  The Shaded Nine Patch is an amazing unit that has endless possibilities & can be made in 7 sizes.  Maybe Sarah will make it a pattern someday. You will need the Tucker Trimmer ...

Patriotic Lemoynes from If These Threads Could Talk

It is late March 2020. Most of us are quarantined inside. At least those of us in New York are! I had planned to schedule a class at Stash away Quilt Shoppe in Rome NY, for a Quilt of Valor using the Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star ruler. I decided to just post the lesson here and share it with anyone who would like to make Patriotic Lemoynes.

I went to my EQ8 software and designed this quilt for Lynn. This is a great skill builder for those that took the Tucker University Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star class but haven’t ...

Hallucinating with my Spirit Animal from If These Threads Could Talk

I was entertaining my self with Facebook when I saw a post by my friend and fellow Studio 180 Design Certified Instructor, Karen Overton The Quilt Rambler. Here is some of what she wrote: “The idea began with a talented quilter named Jessica of Jessica Quilter also known on Instagram as @Jessicaquilter. Seems the good folks at Just Wanna Quilt picked up on her inspiration and ran with it! More details can be found here on the JWQ website. Jessica had an idea to use a little bit of her favorite fabrics from her “inventory” and the rest they say ...

A Few of My Favorite Things from If These Threads Could Talk

World Wide Quilting Day is March 21, 2020. I will be participating in a Blog Hop to celebrate. The theme is “Making Us Laugh”.

My assigned day is Friday March 20th. I was working on my secret project for the blog hop and using my Reliable iron and started thinking about some of the tools I love while making quilts (besides my all time favorite Studio 180 design tools)! Is it too much to say I’m in love with this iron? I love a substantial iron that produces great steam!

The Velocity 260IR’s patented built-in steam generator produces ...

Pyramid Power from If These Threads Could Talk

The fabrics shown in this post were given to me by Island Batik.

December’s challenge is to explore the world of 3D by using optical illusions, textures, trapunto or whatever else will make your quilt pop into life! I chose to make Pyramid Power, a pattern by Running with Scissors & Studio 180 Design. I think the design looks like perfectly folded boxes that must contain wonderful chocolates inside.

It is a bright sunny day here in Central NY and a balmy 11 degrees outside!

This pattern uses Studio 180 Design Corner Pop II & Corner Pop III. These tools give ...

Last January Island Batik gave me a secret bundle to hold onto till November, it was Tropical Escape shown above. I sat and looking at the bundle of gorgeous fabrics, waiting for them to talk to me.

Doves of Hope from If These Threads Could Talk

I just finished my “Doves of Hope” quilt and wanted to share it with you.

Deb Tucker designed this quilt for Marie Bostwick’s book “Hope on the Inside”. Deb’s pattern Doves of Hope is a twist on a traditional block titled Dove in the Window. She actually nestled a small dove block inside a large dove block to create a quarter section for each 19½” .

I will be teaching Doves of Hope in January 2020 at Copper Canyon Quilting in Lake Havasu, AZ.

I absolutely love how it came out. I pulled out my Island Batik scraps for ...
